I agree don't get clamp on forks. In the three years I have had a FEL I have never used the bucket. My Forks are on it all the time.

Since Buying My Artillian Forks I barely use the Bucket even. Usually have the forks On with the Backhoe But I have 3 tractors with a Loader. Now that I also have a dedicated Mowing tractor I usually have the 45 loader On MY X748 so it allows Me to keep the forks On 2025R 90% of the time

Mike you'll have plenty of use for the forks when you put the addition on your shop.

I had a set of pallet forks with the orange tractor that I had 17 hours on. I would say 12 of those hours were with the pallet forks on, and when I sold the tractor to buy the 2032R I knew I needed another set of forks because for me they are more handy than the loader bucket. I just ordered a set of Artillian forks for the Deere and they will be on the loader the majority of the time. I found more uses for forks than I ever could imagine, let alone to use them to move pallets with implements on.

Once your back gets twisted or hurt and you begin to "protect" it, the forks play a huge part in your future.

When I have used the clamp on forks my lifting capability seems to go down? I'm not sure but I'm thinking its due to the hydraulic capacity and the load being farther out from the bucket?
Taking the easy way is what makes rivers and men crooked.
